Right as Ramps

video

It's just this simple, people. Kids, mud, and tilted surfaces make for infinitely more fun than any high priced video game or toy. This is a new bike ramp our buddy got for Christmas. Never a bike has it seen. But boy does it provide hours of good dirty fun (and quite a few quality injuries) for little boys. This is MY kind of toy!

Speaking of toys, I dislike them in general. I remember about 3 things from my childhood as being fun to play with (LEGOs, marble runs and that god-awful makeup doll head one could give a makeover to), and the rest of the time we spent playing soccer, ding dong ditch (okay I know that's not right), fort-building and doctor (again, not exactly "right").

I also dislike swim toys. Fins, in general. I cannot figure out why, as a soccer player, I cannot KICK in the water. Why, I ask you, is Lanshin lapping me before we're at the 400 mark? This is also, not right.

But the ramp...that's RIGHT. Full circle post, see?

*warmup: 600 free

add fins for:

*3 x 800's, first one with 5 underwater dolphin kicks after every wall, second one build by 200, third one 100's on/off fast/slow

*6 x 100's descending

*200 sans fins warmdown
